The Salvation Army provides hope during the holidays
to Eastern Michigan through:

Red Kettles

Everywhere, public contributions to Salvation Army kettles enable the organization to continue its year-round efforts at helping those who would otherwise be forgotten.

While our main focus is raising funds, our volunteers are what makes Red Kettle season a success. We are always looking for motivated volunteers to help us ring.

Coats For Kids

The Salvation Army is partnering with Marathon Petroleum and FM 98 WJLB to give hope during the 34th Annual Coats for Kids & More Radiothon that provides coats and other winter accessories to children in need across Metro Detroit. A $25 donation provides one coat for a child in need.

Angel Tree

The Salvation Army Angel Tree program is an opportunity to spread joy and cheer to the less fortunate during the holidays. Whether you are an individual, family, organization, church, business or club, you can help make a difference by accepting any number of Angel Tree tags from The Salvation Army. Angel Trees represent the wishes and desires of a child or youth. Through the Angel Tree program, families and children have their specific needs and wants met for a warm and joyous holiday experience.

Christmas Assistance

The Salvation Army of Metro Detroit is currently accepting applications for Christmas assistance from residents of Wayne, Oakland and Macomb Counties at all metro Detroit Salvation Army corps community centers. Families with children up to age 14 may apply to receive toys from The Salvation Army corps community centers? toy shops. Families up to six will receive a box of non-perishable food to prepare a holiday meal and a grocery store gift card to purchase fresh foods. Larger families will receive more. Senior citizens will receive grocery store gift cards.

Millions of American parents cannot afford to buy their kids Christmas presents.

The holidays bring added financial and emotional stress to families living in poverty.

The Salvation Army's mission shines brightest at Christmastime.

The Salvation Army celebrates the birth of Christ by spreading His hope, love and joy to the less fortunate members of society. In fact, our gift-giving programs and fundraising initiatives are a direct answer to God's calling to care for the poor, hungry, sick, and displaced. From physical needs such as grocery, utility and gift assistance, to emotional experiences including holiday events and traditions, to spiritual guidance that provides healing and hope, we work to assist the whole person through gifts that serve the body, mind and soul.
